Polls open for County Commissioner

Published: Monday, August 25, 2014 at 05:31 PM.

As election seasons kicks-off in Walton County , four candidates are vying for the title of County Commissioner , District 2 and the polls are open. The candidates are Sandy Jack Brown, Danny Glidewell, Cecilia Jones and Kenneth Pridgen. All candidates in this race are Republican and therefore the decision will be made in the primaries Aug. 26.

The Sun asked each candidate a series of questions regarding their bid in this election.


Why are you running for County Commissioner , District 2?

Brown: I will strive to improve the standard of living for the common citizens of Walton County through better management of county government.

Glidewell: I have been involved in public service most of my life and believe my experience in both county government and numerous civic and non-profit organizations gives me insight into what the problems are and how we can solve them.

Jones: I'm running because Walton County residents deserve an active, focused commissioner who will work to strengthen the economy by lowering taxes, creating jobs, and cutting unnecessary spending — and a commissioner who will fight to improve the basic services (such as road repairs and storm water management), that we are already paying for. I see too many people — individuals and small business owners — struggling, and county government is too often creating problems, not solutions. Walton County residents also deserve a commissioner who is independent and fair, treats all residents with respect, and who helps restore common sense and professionalism to the commission. I will do that.
